Abyaneh village, also called the "red village", is a village, in Isfahan Province, Iran. Abyaneh is a tiered village meaning houses are built so that the roofs of the ones built lower on the slope serve as the courtyard of the higher ones. In some parts of the village, there are up to four tiers of houses. Characterized by a peculiar reddish hue, the village is one of the oldest in Iran, attracting numerous native and foreign tourists year-round, especially during traditional feasts and ceremonies. An Abyunaki woman typically wears a white long scarf which has a colorful pattern and an under-knee skirt. The inhabitants of Abyaneh have for thousands of years maintained their culture, customs and costumes, wearing outfits that are said to have been worn in Sassanid times. The dialect spoken by Abyunaki people is believed to have been the language of ancient Persia. On top of the village sits the ruins of a Sassanid era fort.
